    Windows randomly freezing and not responding, having to force shutdown


    From yesterday, my laptop has been freezing at any random moment and I am having to force the laptop to shut down by pressing the power button. Whenever this happens I have noticed that the light on the laptop that shows disk activity goes completely off. (I have attached an image).

    I have done a complete reinstall of Windows and this problem is still persisting. Can I please get any help on how to solve this?

    Thanks in advance!

    My Laptop:

    ASUS TUF FX505DY-BQ002T
    WD Blue SN550 512GB NVME SSD (System drive)
    Toshiba mq04abf100 1TB HDD (Data drive)

    CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3550H
    GPU: AMD Radeon RX 560X

    Windows 10 64 bit 20H2

    :)

  2. Windows Folders Randomly Freezing and Not Responding

    Once in a while, some of my windows folders, irrespective of the number of files and their size randomly freezes, then shows not responding and shuts down.

    When i try and open them again they do the same. over and over.

    the only solutions I have found to overcome this is.

    1. Restart the System.
    2. Remove a few items from the folder.
    3. Change the Sort by/Group by Format of the folder.

    Can anyone suggest what may be the source of the problem; and any solutions ?

    Windows 10 freezes randomly


    I had already tried turning off fast startup, to no avail.
    Will look at the list you provided, thanks. Hard to do when computer freezes on the Windows loading screen though. *Biggrin
    I had tried that as well... no result.
